Check what you get with an update, it's full of bloated executables. Many, perhaps most, Microsoft customers are extremely pixxed off, because their Win 10 machines are most of the time at 100% cpu and disk use, and therefore unusable. This is the consequence of the size doesn't matter
cult: Micros**t will lose the desktop market to Linux and Macs.
Code: Select all
Windows install Ghz/RAM/disk:
Atari ST 8/0.5/1
Win 3.1 25/2mb/6mb
2000 133/64/0.65 of 2g
Vista HP 1g/1g/15 of 40g
Win 7 1g/1g/16
Win 10 1g/2g/32
These are the official requirements. Note that an Atari ST ran just fine with half a megabyte, but running Win 10 with the official 2048 MB is a joke...
I checked my C:\Program Files stuff: 512 exe files (this is Win7-64). That folder is mostly empty because C:\Program Files (x86) is still much more popular: almost 20,000 exe or dll files, most of which I did not install myself. Sorting that list by size took 20 seconds, probably because the programmer of my file manager has not the faintest idea how a Windows listview works (in Assembly, I sort a million lines in about one second). I am regularly confronted with ridiculously slow, bloated and buggy software. WhatsApp for Windows, for example, starts sometimes writing to disk at a pace of 3MB per second, for no apparent reason other than a link in one post. Sometimes I open the task manager and discover that the bloody piece of bloat has written 30GB to disk in the last three hours. If you go on holidays for a week and leave your machine on, that's >1800 GB, and your SSD is probably ready for the waste bin. Lousy software everywhere, and I doubt that it's the fault of Micros**t. Programming for 300+ different Linux flavours can't be easier.

Just throwing in some other totally off-topic comment.
Your post is indeed off-topic. Btw, it's only "About 473,000 results" (there is a huge difference if you use brackets or not).
